Coach: Kevin Cooper (10th year)

Last Season: 9-1, Lost in Western Maine semifinals

Players to Watch: RB/DB Tyler Pratt, OL/DL Matt Spearin, OL/DL Kyle Wedge, OL/LB, Brandon Keene, OL/DL Josh Spearin, TE/DE Travis Dunn, WR/DB John Onesti, WR/DB Darren Lovley, WR/DB Ricky Hoyt, QB Nate Doehler, RB/DB Josh Ruby, LB/RB Dayton McPherson, OL/DE Dana Jackson, TE/DL Otis Oakes

Coach’s Outlook: “We have an inexperienced team in a sense of many seniors stepping into varsity roles for the first time. There will be some growing pains but we feel we have the talent to compete for a state championship. We are very versatile and multiple on offense. Tyler Pratt, John Onesti, Darren Lovley, Ricky Hoyt and Josh Ruby all have the ability to be both ball carriers and receivers and our QB Nate Doehler should develop into one of the best passer/runner combinations in the SMAA. We have great size on our offensive and defensive lines that should allow our backs to make plays for us.”

Girls Cross Country

Coach: Greg Wilkinson

Last year’s record: 12-5-finished sixth in states

Runners to watch: Sophomores Ashley Cox, Lauren Dudley, Corey Simmons and Keeley Cronin; freshman Amber Dostie

Coach’s outlook: “We lost a lot of seniors. Our top five runners are four sophomores and a freshman. But it’s going to be a lot of fun with no pressure. This is a good league with a lot of quality teams like Scarborough, Cheverus, McAuley, South Portland, Kennebunk, Massabesic and Thornton Academy. But I think we can fit right in with those teams.”

Boys Cross Country

Coach: Thomas Noonan (5th year)

Last year’s record: The team qualified for the state meet.

Runners to watch: Seniors Murphy Doughty and Noah Schoneberg. Sophomore Tim Belanger

Coach’s outlook: “We should finish the season with a winning record. We hope to qualify once again for the state meet.”

Field Hockey

Coach: Patty Bourget (5th year)

Last year’s record: 11-1-2-lost to Gorham in the Western Maine semifinals

Players to watch: Amy Richardson, senior, midfield; Megan Kuschke, senior, forward; Becky King, sophomore, forward; Peyton Dostie, freshman, forward

Coach’s outlook: “After losing 11 seniors last year, it is a rebuilding year for us with a lot of underclassmen stepping into key positions.”


Coach: Chuck Waterman (1st year)

Players to watch: Kevin Moskevich, Brian Moskevich, Kayle Hamilton

Coach’s outlook: “We have a solid team this year that can be competitive and a large group of underclassmen that should continue this trend onward. With some focus and determination we may be able to have some of the top teams in our division take notice.”

Boys Soccer

Coach: Alan Curtis (1st year)

Last year’s record: 6-5-3-lost in quarterfinals

Players to watch: Tyler Shortsleeve, Jamie Ruginski, Lincoln Sanborn

Outlook: The Scots lost a few seniors, but are returning some good athletes. Last year perennial powerhouse Scarborough knocked them out. This year’s team should be a playoff team.

Girls Soccer

Coach: Kerry Townsend (2nd year)

Last year’s record: 3-9-2-missed playoffs

Players to watch: Messina Provencher, Stephanie Stockwell

Outlook: The Scots are a young team that was just two wins shy of the tournament last year. They could find their way in this year if things go right.
